EPA rates the Volt at 34 kw-hr/100 miles, but Motor Trend's long term test results are at a shocking 71 kw-hr/100 miles!
How could this be possible? I've got a Volt thread going on in another website for bicycle enthusiasts and it's bogged down with one of the posters using this figure to hammer the Volt down. His point has the potential to be very damaging..... if 71 is a real world figure then the Volt saves no better than a 30mpg gas powered car.
Here's the thread; any Volt owners who want to help me out by signing up on the site (I'm Starliner over there) and posting your real world experience with your Volt you are welcome to do so:
